Know your Fabric

Ajrakh’s name is derived from 'azarak' meaning 'blue' in Arabic. It finds it origin from the Sindh region in India and was introduced in the Mughal period. It is a block-printed textile that is made using natural dyes namely indigo (blue) and madder (red), though now many colors are used.  An Ajrakh print is identified by its complex geometric and floral patterns. A remarkable feature of Ajrakh print is that on a single fabric, resist printing along with other printing and dyeing techniques are used in combination. The whole process is repeated on both sides of the fabric in perfect cohesion which calls for unsurpassed skill. Ajrakh uses mud-resist in the various stages and another unique feature is that the dyeing and printing is repeated twice on the fabric to ensure brilliance of colour. Superimposing the repeats is done perfectly thus revealing a sense of detail in every motif designed.

Washcare: Ajrakh Prints are made from natural dye color that may bleed. Please wash separately in cold water.
